Services of remembrance for bereaved parents

Services of remembrance for bereaved parents

Services of remembrance for bereaved parents ImageThere will be two services of remembrance taking place in the Chapel of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) on Sunday 6th November for anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby at any stage of pregnancy or in early life. For those who wish to come in the afternoon, there will be activities for children and their parents in the chapel from 3pm. The theme this year is “bubbles” so there will be an opportunity to blow bubbles and decorate a transparent circle with drawings and baby’s name.

The first service will be held at 4.00pm in the Benjamin Gooch Lecture Theatre at the NNUH and is designed for families and suitable for parents to bring young children. There will also be an evening service at 6.00pm in the Chapel which is aimed at adults to engage in a quieter, more reflective service.

Lost little ones were remembered by their bereaved parents and family members as angel-shaped balloons were released into the sky today. 

The emotional moment was part of an open remembrance day at St Catherine’s Church, in Mile Cross, which was organised by Treasured Dreams, a support group for people who have lost children.
